Pastel "Lethal Gasp" Print Release

Joining 1xRUN for his very first proper print release they welcome Buenos Aires based artist Pastel. Creating a breathtaking and painstakingly pulled screen print with 1xRUN Master Printer Jonny Alexander, Lethal Gasp focuses on the artist's most recent Lethal series focusing on poisonous plants.

"This is the first main print that I have done. It was also a great experience because I was part of the entire process. I liked that. I think that people that are working in a given medium need to know the whole process.

This print is part of the Lethal series (poisonous plants). It is a symbolic way to talk about the same concept that I will use to work on walls, working with plants to show the social and historical problems that modern society has, how this is changing the way people are living. Not because it’s a natural change for common people, it’s not a modernity pushing, it’s modern society pushing people to change. Painting these plants is like painting a reflection of this problem. I feel plants are the strongest way to talk about it." - Pastel

The print measures 16 x 20 Inches. It is a 13-Color Serigraph on Hand-Deckled 290gsm Coventry Rag Fine Art Paper.
